    OSX Tiger CD
    I have a intel macbook, my wife has a PowerBook and her is in desperate need of having tiger reinstalled on it. My question is can my OS X disc be used on her laptop or will it not work at all. She lost her cd a while ago btw. Thanks for the help!

    If you're talking about your restore discs, then the answer is no as those are model-specific. You would have to get yourself either a set of replacement discs from Apple or buy a retail copy of Tiger.

    And apple doesn't have the CD's any longer. They stopped that over the summer. You'll have to buy retail. If you're brave, you can buy some off ebay but I had some bad luck going that route. I finally just bought retail. In my case, I wanted to upgrade my old eMac to Tiger. And since the emac doesn't have a DVD, I had to figure out a way to get Tiger DVD onto the CD emac.
    Luckily I also have an ibook - any mac computer should work as a host computer and just download using the target disk mode deal. Worked like a charm.
